Physicians and therapists encourage individuals suffering from addiction to get help from qualified physicians and treatment facilities. Moreover, a medically monitored detoxification process is critical to avoid seizures, heart attacks, strokes, and even depression-related suicide during the withdrawal stages.
Similarly, the duration of treatment may be different for each individual. At CTC Counseling individuals are welcome to continue treatment / counseling even after having completed the program. This allows each person time to develop confidence in their sobriety and coping techniques needed for the transition from rehab to daily life in society.
At CTC Counseling, we believe that family involvement is a significant part of the recovery process. Family members will have contact with the primary therapist, may be included in select counseling sessions, and are encouraged to attend programs for family members including:
- Education on the nature of addiction
- Relapse prevention tools
- Coping skills
- Information on co-dependency and how to break damaging enabling patterns
- Ongoing communication with the primary therapist treating individual
- Family therapy sessions
- Introduction to Al-Anon and other nationwide support groups
